Delta Lady by Philip West.


Delta Lady by Philip West.

Moments after take off, the mighty Avro Vulcan XH558 begins her majestic climb through stormclouds, out over the British countryside towards the North Sea. A masterpiece of British engineering excellence, with a crew of 5, she reached a speed of 625 mph and excelled at a height of 61,000 feet, as well as a remarkable low level capacity for avoiding radar detection. Built as a bomber and some 106 feet in length with a wingspan of 111 feet, she had no means of defending herself from attack.

Squadron Leader Barry Masefield
*Signature Value : £20

The signature of Squadron Leader David Thomas

Squadron Leader David Thomas
*Signature Value : £15

Squadron Leader David Thomas joined the Royal Air Force in 1962. His Service career has been evenly split between being a qualified flying instructor and the Vulcan. He has completed 5 tours of duty on the Vulcan, 3 of them as an instructor, and he first displayed the aircraft in 1973. In addition to the Vulcan, he has instructed on the Jet Provost, Tucano, Jetstream, DC3 and Lancaster. Squadron Leader Thomas currently serves at Royal Air Force College Cranwelland on The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
Wing Commander Michael M Pollitt
*Signature Value : £15

Wing Commander Michael M Pollitt joined the RAF in 1974. It is with regret that he joined the Vulcan Force so late in the aircrafts life. As a young co-pilot he was trained by David Thomas and later completed his captain s course with Paul Milliken, finally being examined by Joe L Estrange; so enthusiastic display pilots always influenced his time on Vulcans. After leaving the Vulcan in 1981 having logged 780 hours, he became a qualified flying instructor on Jet Provost (JP), first at RAF College Cranwell for 4 years. Later he commanded the Central Flying School (CFS) JP and Tucano Sqn at Scampton and eventually returned to Scampton as Chief Flying Instructor of CFS in the mid-90s. His last command flying tour was as CC Flying at RAF Cranwell where he instructed on the Bulldog and Jetstream. He is currently CFSO at HQ STC.
